After the thundering response to Sachin Tendulkar biopic teaser trailer ‘ SACHIN’, it now reported by that Sachin’s son Arjun Tendulkar is likely the role of a younger Sachin in the movie. The makers of the movie were in hunt of some suitable to play Sachin, finally came to the conclusion that Arjun would be the most apt to play the role of younger Sachin. It will be like poetic justice to see Arjun play the role of his father. Sachin Tendulkar on Thursday did say that acting on-screen was way tougher than playing cricket. “For so many years, I did whatever I wanted to do and the camera captured that. Suddenly I was asked to do particular things and then the camera captured that, so it was a bit different for me. Believe me, the first option was better,” said Tendulkar.

As was reported by Times of India, the makers wanted someone who, had complete knowledge of the game, and could easily emulate Sachin’s body language and mannerisms. The year 2016 is indeed an exciting year first with the teaser release of MS Dhoni biopic, following the trailer launch of Mohammad Azharuddin’s biopic and now the much awaited movie teaser of India‘s batting legend Sachin Tendulkar called Sachin- A billion dreams.

The movie features Tendulkar himself while the teaser is also narrated by him. The teaser released earlier on Thursday while the poster was revealed by Tendulkar on Monday. The likes of Suresh Raina, Rohit Sharma and Virender Sehwag shared the picture on social media.
